In short, if you don't like Silent Hill you won't like this, and if you expect this to be any thing like Resident Evil you won't get what you expect.
In greater detail:
It isn't terrible but the overwhelmingly positive reviews convinced me to buy it and I don't think I even want to finish the game, so I'm ticking 'not recommended' and I'll explain why, although I would recommend it to some people. I bought the game under the premise it was a rip-off of Resident Evil, and classic Resident Evil is my favourite stuff in the world, so I thought I'd give it a go. It is hardly reminiscent of Resident Evil in any respect. It feels cumbersome to me, almost like an unfinished game, but so do SIlent Hill 1, 2, and 3, and it reminds me a *lot* of Silent Hill. But I don't have high hopes for the story, which is one of the most important things in a Silent Hill game. So, If you adore Silent Hill give this a try.
The differences between this and SIlent Hill are chiefly that of the teens you control any of them can die, which is interesting, the puzzles aren't as hard, and the inventory is real-time.
